Lenina does not love John and he does not feel worthy of her so when she starts stripping he pushes her away and calls her a whore. A quote that stood out was, “How much I love you, Lenina,”(191) because of how this is the first time those words are uttered from a character. I think Huxley will later reveal why John rejected Lenina when she offered herself to him and I think love is going to be further spoken of and explored due to the fact that it involves a Savage who was raised around married couples and a Beta who was conditioned to think that promiscuity is what is
Throughout the book, Jaimito is controlling his wife's actions and constantly questioning her, which doesn’t cause him to seem like a great husband or even a kindhearted person. His actions seem to directly result in Dede being depressed and wanting a divorce. Another result of Jaimito’s behavior is that his wife’s sisters begin to disapprove of him and believe that Dede’s life would be better without him. Jaimito is definitely one of the more sinister characters in the novel, besides the murderous, perverted

The woman previously stated that she forces herself on the ones she is not supposed to love, and she is forcing herself on her own sister. She is using her sister to fill the void of emptiness that she felt when she was younger, because she had no idea how to love someone.
Basically as if he, being a man, was greater than her, being a woman. The fact that Milkman changed the way he saw his mother because of his actions communicates Morrison’s portrayal of women. Since Milkman never had anything serious with these women, he never took them seriously. All these women would provide was sexual pleasure; therefore they were viewed as something with little to no importance. Milkman didn’t become less than what he was because he’s a man, but it’s not the same for women.
Beauty pertains to the goddesses and women. Homer infers that a woman’s importance lies in her looks while for men their importance lies in their heroism. Throughout The Iliad, Homer highlights the gender inequalities between Helen and her male counterparts Agamemnon, Achilles, and Paris. Homer accentuates the objectification of women through conflicts between male characters. In Book 1, the audience is first introduced to this idea in a speech by the King of Mycenae, Agamemnon.
In many societies today, individuals are led to believe that the concept of women possessing their own strength or independence is abnormal. As a result, women experience the world in a constrained way in comparison to men, even if they are in higher classes of society. However, these extensive aspects of females are contradicted in some ancient Greek literature. In the epic poem, The Odyssey, Homer portrays women as a vital and powerful force through the characters Penelope and Circe, who counter the normality of misogyny in Homer’s time. Penelope’s character displays how some women are able to exceed society’s standards and show strength and cleverness when it is necessary.
Throughout the generation, women have always been trapped in some way or another. In the short story, ‘The Yellow Wall-Paper’ and the novel ‘The Awakening’ highlights the struggle of women in the late 1800’s and the early 1900s in society. The Yellow wallpaper is a short story about women giving birth and being imprisoned in a room with a weird view of the yellow wall-paper. This resulted in her hallucination lead to the development of mental illness. By the end of the story, she rips off the yellow wallpaper and kills her husband.
This sudden empowering of the female characters is the main reason why I have chosen to examine this comedy. The analysis will be focused on the figure of the women in the play and the contentious ideology of the author. The instruments used to explain the women’s political and social position and the unique linguistic choices made by Aristophanes will be the feminist theory and the social factors that influence a language. Summary of the plot The Peloponnesian war (431 b.C. – 408 b.C), fought between the two main Greek cities of Athens and Sparta, appears endless to the eyes of the Greek citizens.
